Many attribute their success to their grind and hustle. However, many know that faith impacts our success as well. “Hustle means that you are trying to get something done or completed,” says Neet Frazier-Diggs. “It can also be another means of making something happen in the manner of some of us having a side hustle or another way of making money other than our main source,” she adds.
For Neet, her faith orders her steps to spread God’s word and healing. Based on her life experiences and shared observations of others, Neet decided to turn her creativity into a new book. Her novel entitled “Hurting People Hurt People But God Heals All Wounds” is a testament to how God can help you overcome anything.
She delves beyond the cliché term to explore how hurting people pass on their hurt and trauma. But Neet doesn’t stop there. She also expresses on paper many solutions to overcoming the hurt based on scriptures and insight. “Hurting people will always hurt people if they don’t get to the root of their pain,” she adds. “God heals all wounds by working on the inside and dealing with the heart,” she continues. Her new novel is a guidebook towards healing. Here’s what she shared about her new book and life experiences:
What does the cliche’ “hurt people, hurt people” mean to you?
“As stated in my book, sometimes this is said to give an excuse for behaviors we can’t explain about people we really don’t know or even care to get to know. When we don’t know why someone hurt someone else, we just say hurt people hurt people. This means that the reason that they did what they did is because they were hurting.”
How does your novel go beyond the cliche’ term to get to the root of how “hurting people, hurt people” while understanding that God Heals All Wounds?
“In order to know about the creature, you must go to the Creator. We don’t always understand why things in life happen to us. We don’t always know how to deal with what has happened to us. Some people are hurt and they are able to move past their hurt, but some people harbor that hurt and it builds to a point that stirs them to want revenge. We have all been hurt at some point. Hurt people may or may not hurt someone else, but if a person is still hurting they often find a way to seek revenge or relieve that pain in some manner. It normally causes pain for someone else or even the person themselves. In order not to hurt someone else, we must go to the Creator so that He can remove the hurt and stop the pain.”
How is your book impact communities of faith and color?
“As I look around at all the shootings and mass murders today, I would hope that my book would reach various communities. We don’t often like to stereotype, but in many communities, we are hurting ourselves. Yes it is true that every now and then someone may come from the outside and do the damage, but many times the damage is done by the ones that we sit with and have conversations with no matter what community it is. I also pray that the message that is being shared with those throughout communities of any faith and color is that there is another solution. You don’t have to handle your pain on your own. There is someone that can help you through your pain and make you better.”
Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?
“Hopefully preparing myself for retirement. The goal is to build my business over the next 10 years so that I can enjoy retirement and live the abundant life that God has promised.”
Neet Frazier-Diggs will definitely thrive abundantly with her new novel of hope and inspiration. Through her writing, she is healing others by sharing her faith and God’s love.
